Clean Ductwork to Boost Indoor Air Quality
The primary reason, in most cases, for scheduling professional duct cleaning services is to help protect the quality of the air in one’s home. If you use a ducted HVAC system, all of the air that this system heats and/or cools must travel throughout your ductwork en route to its final destination. If your ductwork is dirty within, then problems can arise. The air travelling through your ductwork can pick up the pollutants clinging to the surfaces of your air ducts. Once it has, your ductwork can actually serve to distribute these pollutants throughout your entire home. This can have a seriously detrimental effect on the indoor air quality throughout your living space.
Clean Air Ducts Can Also Protect Efficiency
It is unlikely that your ductwork will become so clogged with pollutants that air cannot pass through them. However, should your ductwork be dirty within, the pollutants therein can build up on your air filters and even on other components within the HVAC system itself. When this happens, airflow resistance can increase, and the overall efficiency with which your HVAC system operates will suffer. Professional duct cleaning is necessary if you hope to avoid such problems, allowing you to heat and cool your home effectively and efficiently, while also maintaining air of a high quality throughout your house.
